When you are in a relationship sometimes it can be hard to tell if the person you are dating truly loves you. While we might think we are loved, sometimes we are mistaken.

False love is far more common than we would like to admit. Some of us spend our whole lives with people who just don’t really give a shit about us. However, there are lots of things that define a loving relationship. If you and your partner do the following you are in a truly loving relationship.
